Your Wings Are Ready

Hello Friends

I have a lovely butterfly card for you today inspired by article of clothing. My husband bought me lovely butterfly jammies (pyjamas) for Christmas. I LOVE them so much. They are the kind that when you put them on they are just super comfy and you want to live in them ha! Anyway I loved the pattern on them too. A collaboration of different butterflies coloured in pink with a touch of grey. I thought this would make a great card.

I got out some of my favourite Unity butterfly stamps to create a similar pattern.  I used my distress inks to paint the butterflies and background. 

I really love the combination of the colours once it was dry I stamped the word butterflies all over it with silver ink. I backed it on to some glitter paper and then a grey card base. I added some glitter to each butterfly. Finally I printed out a sentiment that I love to add to my card.

~ Your time as a caterpillar has expired. Your wings are ready. ~ 

It is time my friends to shake off the old and fly into the new. Whatever that may be for you in 2015, have the courage to use your wings. Be brave and FLY!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project
